This course has been approved for a maximum of 12.25 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Target Audience: • All Specialities Course Overview: This CME activity will help prepare the International Humanitarian volunteer for delivering surgical care in a low resource setting for treatment of common surgical and obstetric conditions. In developing and in-crisis countries, the surgical volunteer must truly be a “generalist” and able to handle an array of surgical conditions. This 1 ½ day course will provide an overview of the scope of conditions that one might encounter in resource- limited environments. Through a variety of techniques including skill stations and simulation, participants will familiarize themselves with several relevant procedures, as well as the essential elements of surgical safety, ethics, and cultural considerations required for such settings. Specific skill areas that will be taught are orthopedic dislocations and fracture management with traction pins and external fixation, cesarean sections, post-partum hemorrhage, primary repair of inguinal hernia, wound and burn management, hand cutting of skin grafts and basic skin flaps, emergency burr holes, hysterectomy, uterine evacuations, tendon repairs, tropical medicine for surgical diseases, and low resource anesthetic techniques. Course Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to discuss disease management in low resource settings and demonstrate necessary procedural steps for the following: • Personal preparedness • Ethical considerations • Tropical medicine relevant to surgical disease • Low-resource anesthesia • Fracture and dislocations management • Cesarean section • Post-partum hemorrhage • Tubal pregnancy treatment • Wounds and burns management • Hand cut skin grafts • Emergency “blind" burr holes • Hand injuries, tendon repairs • Intrauterine evacuation/ D&C • Techniques for difficult cesarean deliveries:breech, transverse lie, and impacted head presentations • Emergency hysterectomy • Inguinal - primary tissue hernia repair
Stanford Interstitial Lung Disease Symposium: Diagnosing and Treating Interstitial Lung Disease 2020
Feb 29, 2020 | CME 6.50 | USD $350 | Palo Alto, California
Stanford Interstitial Lung Disease Symposium: Diagnosing and Treating Interstitial Lung Disease is organized by Stanford Center for Continuing Medical Education and will be held on Feb 29, 2020 at Li Ka Shing Learning and Knowledge Center, Palo Alto, California, United States of America. This course has been approved for a maximum of 6.50 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Target Audience: Critical Care & Pulmonology, Internal Medicine Course Overview: This CME event led by the Stanford Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care seeks to fulfill the need of practicing pulmonologists, primary care physicians, advanced-practice providers, and allied health care practitioners in the academic and community settings to achieve an accurate diagnosis and implement a comprehensive treatment plan for patients with interstitial lung disease. A team of multidisciplinary experts will address common challenges with an emphasis on the role of accurateradiographic interpretation, in combination with diagnostic testing and classification, and disease managementstrategies. The goal of the symposium is to improve the delivery of early, appropriate, and comprehensive care to the patient with the interstitial lung disease. Course Objectives: At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to: • Demonstrate the application of radiologic algorithms and classification criteria to IPF and non-IPF ILDs. • Summarize the key points of ILD classification as stated in the current ATS ILD Guidelines. • Review the criteria for initiating therapy in fibrotic and non-fibrotic ILDs and analyze the long-term monitoring process. • Using the criteria, determine appropriate timing for the referral of an ILD patient for a lung transplant evaluation.
Apr 20, 2020 | CE Hours 6.00 | USD $249.99 | Palo Alto, California
High Risk Obstetrics: Current Trends, Treatments & Issues is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Apr 20, 2020 at The Westin Palo Alto, Palo Alto, California, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.0 clock hours of continuing education instruction / 6.0 contact hours. Target Audience: • Nurses • Clinical Nurse Specialists • Nurse Practitioners • Nurse Midwives • Certified Childbirth Educators/Doulas Course Description: Jamie Otremba will delve into the most common obstetrical emergencies presenting in today's obstetrical patients. She will provide you with a comprehensive look at pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, HELLP, the pitfalls of diagnosing and treating preterm labor, shoulder dystocia, abruption, previa, postpartum hemorrhage, placenta accreta, amniotic fluid embolism, venous thromboembolism, VBACs, and inductions. Jamie's extensive experiences in high risk obstetrics have provided her with keen insight into these often challenging and frightening situations. She is eager to share with you many of the effective interventions that she has acquired throughout her career! Through enlightening case studies, persuasive evidence-based research, and an engaging presentation style, she will teach you the current trends, treatments and issues in high risk obstetrics. Attend this seminar to learn new strategies and techniques that can immediately impact the maternal and fetal outcomes of your obstetrical patients! Objectives: • Evaluate the two-phase process that results in pre-eclampsia. • Compare the pharmacologic management options for preterm labor. • Determine the two most important factors in assessing risk in elective induction. • Explain the most effective way to change medical staff practices related to high risk elective inductions. • Interpret the possible causes of a post-partum hemorrhage and appropriate management for each. • Discuss strategies for collaborative care with the ICU and Emergency Department. • Explain why a d-dimer is no longer recommended as part of the evaluation for pulmonary embolism in pregnancy. • Utilize the latest ACOG recommendations for preventing blood loss during the delivery with an accreta. • Compare the varying degrees of abnormal placental implantation and how management might differ for each. • Analyze why neurological outcomes with amniotic fluid embolism are so poor and the rapid interventions that could make a difference.
